I've been searching on how to become "Certified" in "HUD's Housing Quality Standards" and I can't find anything online. There is a county near me that is seeking proposals to conduct these inspection and wants proof of certification as part of the proposal. I have the standard and other documents, but can find nothing on being certified. Anyone know anything about this?

Does this regard Section 8 housing?

Hi,

I think this is what you are looking for; but it looks like they are not currently accepting applications from folks to be certified: Click Here.

Yes, it relates to section 8.

Hi All,

Just to let all of you know, our state's home inspector's board took a look at this issue and has determined that anyone doing these whatever-HUD-chooses-to-call-them is practicing home inspections and must be licensed in Washington State.

Thanks for the info Mike. I decided not to spend the time putting together a bid for the county contract. Besides not having the "HUD Certification" I'm sure no matter what I bid someone else will come in lower.

Came across this site that states they can provide a certification test, didn't look into any details about them or the class though: http://www.quadel.com/course_i...x?id=171
